There’s a new generation of the McLaren Super Series coming our way this year – we all know that since we even saw the model leak in all its glory during one of the closed-doors previewing events.
The automaker has also been keen on teasing the model – showcasing its frame and now letting us know it will make use of a new “active chassis” – with the new proactive Chassis Control letting the lucky owner have all the sideways fun – at the mere touch of the fingertip. The new Proactive Chassis Control II will also include a new feature nicknamed “McLaren Variable Drift Control” – something we already saw in models such as the Focus RS or Mercedes-AMG E63. It lets the user select how much Electronic Stability Control he needs, for easy sideways and tire smoke fun.
There’s more to the chassis of course – it also has settings such as Comfort, Sport, or Track mode. Not the first time an automaker offers something like this – but McLaren wants to bring one of the most advanced systems available on the market. “Proactive Chassis Control II generates a significant amount of additional grip, but not at the expense of the balance and feel of the car,” said Executive Director of Product Development Mark Vinnels. “The depth and breadth of handling precision and ride comfort in combination with the peerless level of driver involvement in the second-generation McLaren Super Series is simply extraordinary.”
